That famous cry of the Red Queen should be ringing in Washington. But you will be surprised at whose heads should roll.
This morning, CNN is reporting that the Supercommitte, that group of upstanding members of Congress that are supposed to be coming up with real cuts to the U.S. deficit have reached an impasse. The issue? Democratic members want $3B in cuts. The Republican members only want the amount legally required, $1.2B.
Are these the same Republicans that have been belly aching for the better part of the last year that there is too much spending in Washington? Are these the same Republicans that are accusing the President of being a socialist and forcing unfunded mandates on the country? Are these the same Republicans that are expecting the United States to take them seriously?
